Kelsey Grammer has confirmed his iconic sitcom character Frasier will be back in a brand new series.
Rumours of a revival have been knocking about for a few years and it has now been confirmed the radio host and psychotherapist will return on Paramount+.
Grammer will reprise his role and will serve as an executive producer on the multi-camera sitcom.
The number of new episodes has not yet been confirmed, Deadline reports.
The long gestating revival was first reported by the US entertainment website in 2018 and Grammer fought to have the show return to screens.
Frasier aired between 1993 and 2004 on NBC for a total of 11 seasons. Created and produced by David Angell, Peter Casey and David Lee, the series is one of the most successful spinoffs ever.
Frasier is one of the most beloved and critically acclaimed sitcoms ever, with dozens of Emmy awards and two Golden Globe wins for Grammer.
In the years since it ended, Frasier has had a successful run in syndication and is often found airing repeats on Channel 4 in the UK.
The character Frasier first appeared in the similarly successful sitcom Cheers and continued the story of the titular character as he returned to his hometown in Seattle to work as a radio host.
During the series he reconnected with his dad, Martin (played by John Mahoney) and his younger brother, Niles (David Hyde Pierce) who also worked as a psychiatrist.
The series had an ensemble cast which included Peri Gilpin as Frasier’s producer, Roz Doyle and Jane Leeves as Daphne Moon, Frasier’s live-in caregiver.
Although details about the revival series have not been confirmed, Deadline reports that it will take place in a different city.
Frasier will be joined in this yet-to-be-confirmed city with new characters, with the original cast not expected to return as series regulars, however one-off guest appearances could be on the cards.
The new series was created by Chris Harris and Joe Cristalli, who worked on How I Met Your Mother and Life in Pieces respectively.
Back in July, Grammer said they were ‘in the final stages of the final script for the first episode,’ for the revival and shared, ‘I’ve had a couple of runs through it, and I cried, so I’m happy’.
